Font and color

UiTM Emblem

The elegant uppercase lettering from the primary logo of UiTM is set in a classy serif typeface with medium-weight bars of the characters. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Bookman Old Style Pro Roman, or Bogue Slab Light, with some minor modifications of the contours.

As for the color palette of the UiTM visual identity, it is based on a bright and intense combination of purple, blue, and yellow, with white additions. The name of the blue, used here is Prussian Blue, while the second main shade is vivid violet. Yellow elevated the brightness of the badge and adds a sense of energy and development.
